Paintball Bonanza Houston pits roving teams of weekend warriors against each other across five distinct outdoor fields. Competitive combatants can skulk across the frontline with their own paintball gun and garb or arm themselves with a rental marker and suit up in Paintball Bonanza's protective masks, goggles, and pasta colanders. Opposing forces compete in Capture the Flag or square off in elimination rounds, both of which typically last 10–15 minutes and are conducted at different fields throughout the day. Eliminated players can regroup with some shade and ice water in the fields' netted elimination zones and luxury foxholes. Along with munitions, Paintball Bonanza rents out camouflage clothes and body armor to protect and conceal bodies throughout a day in the combat zone.
Paintball Bonanza requires all players to complete a release form before they compete. Loose-fitting clothing is recommended, and should be able to cover arms, legs, and capturable flags.
